A Study of North Carolina Negro Homemakers. Extension Evaluation Study No. 4.
Brown, Minnie Miller; And Others
This statewide study of the home demonstration program in nine representative counties was designed to determine home economics extension program needs, to discover the degree of participation, and to locate people who might profit from the program. Personal interviews were conducted with 498 home demonstration club members and 572 nonmembers. National and state studies previously made in connection with family living and home economics were also examined. Findings are in the areas of: (1) residence, (2) home ownership, (3) age, (4) family composition, (5) education, (6) family income, (7) employment status, (8) home facilities, conveniences, and newspaper subscriptions, (9) clothing, (10) family financial management, (11) home furnishings, (12) planned housing changes, (13) production, conservation, and use of foods at home, (14) organization membership and leadership, and (15) family life concerns. The findings suggest the need for further training of personnel and changes in program emphasis and approaches. It is anticipated that future agricultural, youth and 4-H community development, and home economics programs will be affected. (JK)
